British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that a Brexit resolution was some way off but that the Irish backstop had to go and that European Union had reacted constructively to his proposals for a new deal, Reuters has reported on Thursday October 3rd.

"While as I stand here today we are some way from a resolution, it is to the credit of our European friends that they have accepted the need to address these issues," Johnson told parliament.

Johnson said that if a deal was not possible then the United Kingdom would leave without a deal on Oct. 31.
